Phone: (804) 517-5335 We're about bringing USDA Organic and naturally grown produce to the Richmond area, and local and sustainable food production.
Most of our produce is USDA Certified Organic, and what isn't is grown from Organic seeds using only natural methods, so you are doing good for the planet while doing good for your household, your comÂmunity, and yourself. We aim to gracefully blend the "art" and "science" aspects of farming, naturally.
Here's what we did in 2008 (and we expect 2009 to be more of the same): We used USDA Certified Organic heirloom seeds from High Mowing Seeds , Organic potting mixes and soils from McEnroe Organic Farm, Organic (presumably) peat based mixes, and chemical-free growing methods. Even our compost isn't the same old poop that others use, but is (recycled) composted yard waste approved by the State of Maryland for use on Organic farms because it runs so hot for so long-indeed, it arrives still steaming
We set out to also be veganic , but we surveyed our members, and found out that was not a priority. As of late May, we were still nearly there, having used no bone meal, dried blood, etc., only a bit of OMRI certified composted manures from animal sources. We did consider applying some locally caught shad extracts later in the season, but never got around to it. This strikes us as a good balance...recycling local resources left over from someone's dinner.
